Notecard boxes

I had someone ask me if I could make them some notecard sets. Just general sets that would be suitable for gift giving. Sure I can! Even better, she had no color scheme that she wanted or anything in particular, she just wanted coordinating sets. It was also my choice if I wanted to do each set exactly the same design or if I wanted to mix them up. This is one set that I made. I used Papertrey Ink's Borders and Corners Monogram Edition set. This is one set that I made all the cards the same. The cards can be used individually as wedding cards to give or the entire set can be given to the bride and groom. You can add a gift card to the decorations on top of the box or on the inside and the  newly married couple has some handmade thank you cards ready to go. If I make this and know the wedding colors, I will coordinate the cards and box to match. The cards use DCWV card stock, the  Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, CTMH inks and American Crafts ribbon. Here is the box that was made with the same papers as the cards. I haven't decided how I want to decorate the top yet, or if I just want to add a big bow.  
I will show you another box and card set tomorrow. It's a lot different than this one! I love making boxes and things now. All thanks to my Scor-Pal! I couldn't believe what a difference having that made in my projects. Now when I make boxes and things they actually get given away instead of ending up in the trash. If you are on the fence about this one, go for it. It's one of those purchases that was worth every penny and I use it almost every single day.

The box template came from Splitcoaststampers. It is in the resource section under A2 Card Box. Thanks for stopping by and visiting!

These look so elegant! I was just asked if I could make notecards too and how funny - I decided on swiss dots for the background too!

Gina - these are so beautiful. I just love the addition of the embossed swiss dots. I think a bow and/or a scalloped tag would look terrific on your box top. What a great gift to receive for newlyweds!!

Lovely notecard! Your box turned out great! I am so glad I bought a scor-pal--it makes putting together templates so much easier and I don't mess up on the scoring like I used to.
